Alex and Nithya counted the seconds until they could meet each other down the aisle. In separate rooms they both opened personal notes written to each other and read them with smiles on their faces. While guests were arriving at Serra Plaza, Alex and Nithya were adding the finishing touches to their looks. Nithya wore a stunning full lace wedding dress with button detailing down the back while Alex wore a sleek navy tuxedo. The bridesmaids were untraditionally dressed in different silhouettes of white dresses and jumpsuits, but Nithya still stood out in her full lace gown. The ceremony space was decorated in vintage lanterns, greenery and a stunning wooden arch draped in white fabric. Alex waited at the head of the aisle for his beautiful bride, and then all the guests stood to their feet as Nithya walked arm in arm with her father down the aisle. Alex couldn’t fight back his tears of joy the second he saw his bride. The couple broke bread together and recited their vows to conclude the ceremony.
During cocktail hour Crab Cakes with Mango Papaya Salsa and Melted Queso Fundido with Jay’s Famous Tortilla Chips and Jay’s Homemade Salsa were available for everyone to snack on while the wedding party snuck away to take pictures. Upon their return the dinner buffet opened, and guests could choose from Al Pastor Tacos with Homemade Corn Tortillas, Mexican Caesar Salad, Tequila Lime Chicken, Grilled Pineapple and Onions, Spanish Rice, and Spicy Grilled Corn. Tables were set with greenery and golden candlesticks. Pops of burnt orange decorated the table to add a pop of color. The vintage sweetheart table was made of wood and topped with white hydrangeas and roses. A white settee with wooden trim sat behind the table for the newlyweds.
After dinner guests showed off their best moves on the dance floor and ate dessert before sending off Alex and Nithya. Sparklers lit up the way for the newlyweds as they waved goodbye to their closest family and friends.
